Kankakee Community Resource Center
This is the cover of an early introductory flyer to the Community Economic
Development Resource Center Charles Betterton co-founded in Kankakee through
the Kankakee Community Development Corporation he had founded earlier. There
are hundreds of newspaper articles printed about the Resource Center which
continues to provide a broad range of community empowerment programs and
which has received over 1 million dollars in funding from various sources.
One of the best overviews of the project is
an article Despite Naysayers, Armory Building Lives, which
reports on a Governor's Hometown Award the project received.
